    April 27, 2017 - Hmm. Not sure what to make of this. Decanted through an aerator. Colour is dense opaque red. Closed on the nose and palate at first. Quite thick in the mouth with alcohol evident along with some sweetness from the American oak. Fruit was recessed. After an hour, the wine began to open a bit but it seemed like there was more to give but not forthcoming. Not sure if the wine needs more time or not. This bottle was very shut down.

    April 20, 2017 - Drunk over 2 nights. Lovely wine just coming into its drinking window. Dark fruit with soft tannins. Long palate. Will wait another 4 years for the next bottle

    April 8, 2017 - Splash decanted before dinner. Fine sediment. Minimal bricking. Nice dark fruits. No flaws. Resolved tannins. Nice length and balance. Went well w Passover brisket dinner. Drink now or hold for short term.
